COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is returning to his native state to teach a 10-day elective course on governmental leadership at Texas A&M.

The university announced Friday that Bush’s class will begin Jan. 6 and conclude before the regular spring semester begins.

He’s joining the faculty at A&M’s Bush School of Government and Public Service, named for Jeb’s father, former President George H.W. Bush.

Jeb graduated from the University of Texas and was born in Midland, along with his brother George W. Bush, who was Texas governor before leaving for the White House in 2000.

Jeb Bush raised an impressive war chest but dropped out of the Republican presidential primary after the South Carolina primary in February.

His son, George P. Bush, was elected Texas land commissioner in 2014. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
